Winter Northwest Trek - West

We drove north to Oregon, encountering snow near Siskiyou Summit.
 Dawn at our Siskiyou camp. From here we drove north to Washington.
Cape Disappointment State Park
We set up camp at the same location as in July. A small herd of deer bedded down near our camp.
Dawn at Waikiki Beach.
Photographed near the beach.
A cold frozen walk to the restrooms in the morning.
 We moved on to Ocean Shores, Washington where it is legal to drive on the beach.
 Ate dinner at a local restaurant and checked into a motel.
 Later that evening we drove down to the beach and observed the New Year's fireworks.

While searching for a spot to park the night before I drove into a section of deep soft snow. We were so engaged winching the truck back onto a solid surface that I neglected to take a photo.
